Room 4 Adult Bible Study - Bible Study on the Psalms

Starting June 10, the Room 4 Adult Bible Study will begin a study on the psalms written by Rev. Eugene Peterson (who wrote the Message). It is a 12 session look at the Psalms, which show us how to relate to God as we pray our doubts, fears, and anger. They show us how to respond to God in praise. Here we find the best place to explore who we are and what God means to us. Everyone is welcome. Questions? Speak to Doyle Waybright or Susan Nunamaker.
